Cancer remains a leading cause of death in the world. In the United States alone, approximately 39.5% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some time in their lives. Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Common treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, are highly toxic, and come with unpleasant, often painful side effects.

Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Common treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, are highly toxic, and come with unpleasant, often painful side effects.
Cancer patients may experience pain, fatigue, nausea, and loss of appetite. But marijuana medicine may help to reduce some of these symptoms.
Besides providing physical relief, marijuana has the potential to relieve some of the psychological effects of cancer, such as anxiety and depression. Recent studies also show that marijuana may also play a role in slowing disease progression in certain types of cancer by helping the body to regain control over abnormal cell growth.
Cannabinoids, including CBD and THC, are compounds within the marijuana plant that may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer treatments and the disease itself. They work with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to naturally regulate everything from pain response and digestion, to mood and emotions.
Specifically, CBD helps alleviate pain caused by cancer or cancer treatments. And THC not only elevates mood to help reduce stress and anxiety associated with a cancer diagnosis, but it may actually reduce certain types of cancer cells at high doses.
The benefits of marijuana medicine in cancer treatment are widely acknowledged. Two marijuana-based drugs for nausea and loss of appetite in chemo patients have already been approved by the FDA. And studies on marijuana’s role in destroying cancer cells and slowing disease progression are ongoing.
While marijuana cannot replace primary cancer treatments, it can help to reduce the need for additional medications to combat side effects. If you’re looking for a natural way to improve well-being during cancer treatment, talk with your doctor about the important role marijuana medicine can play.
